Fire fighters ready to jump into service at any moment One of the best deals in Lake Country is a service that residents hope they’ll never need. The Lake Country Fire Department presented its annual report at the Central Okanagan Regional District board meeting on March 6 and Fire Chief Steven Windsor delivered some excellent results. The LCFD is a paid on-call volunteer fire force and the district has been well served by the men and women who make up the department. There has been an average increase in emergency call volume to the LCFD over the past five years. There were 50 more calls in 2011 than 2010. That total number includes structure fires (21 over the year), vehicle fires, wild fires (35 last year), motor vehicle accidents and 485 medical calls. The average response time was 10 minutes and 15 seconds. The last stat is where the worth of the LCFD

As a paid on-call fire department, members must come from their home to the fire station before heading out to an emergency call. Members of the department almost all have full-time jobs, some of which are shift work, allowing the department the flexibility to have full coverage. “At any given time we have a good team to respond to an incident,” said Assistant Fire Chief Brent Penner. The department’s budget is $200,000 per year, a tiny fraction of the cost compared to career firefighting staffing. The basic wage rate is $15 per hour, in line with other departments across the valley. An on-call volunteer firefighter can be compensated as little as $30 for showing up to the scene of a motor

vehicle accident or structure fire.

with the resources we are given and we continue to be successful,” said Fire Chief Steve Windsor. Part of that professional service delivery is an extensive training program. Total practice hours in 2011 were 6,249. There is an imperative to keep training, skills and certification current at all times. “The training never ends,” said Penner. Firefighters have also beefed up the lake ice incident training considerably. In the past, response times from the appropriate crews in Kelowna could be well over 20 minutes. In a recent emergency, the LCFD reached an ice incident at Wood Lake in close to 10 minutes. “The level of skill needed today is a lot higher than in years past when you basically learn-

ed on the job,” explained Windsor. “We do have a good budget for training.” The department is now looking for more volunteers. The quality of current volunteers is strong, but overall numbers are slightly down in Oyama. The department looks to have up to 65 volunteer members at any one time. In the past, the LCFD has taken volunteers as young as teens up to people well in their middle age so long as they had the right fitness and attitude. LCFD is looking to resize its fleet of vehicles slightly and put a pair of new 4x4 trucks with the ability to access interface fires and steep slopes out to a request for proposal. Should the proposals come in on budget, older trucks with less situational flexibility will be retired, dropping some maintenance costs. In the next few years a new hall will have to be seriously looked at, Windsor said. Engineering and architectural firms have come back with the verdict that the current 45- to 50-yearold hall is past the point of renovation. Built in four sections, the current hall is missing proper showers for decontamination, and enough room for gear and equipment. The land for the new hall has been procured just a few blocks north of the current location. The department and its volunteers can often be found at non-emergencies, volunteering time at Lake Country elementary schools and participating in community events and fund raisers.

news â–ź WOOD LAKE

Kids learn hard life lesson from brush with death WADE PATERSON A near-death experience has taught three Lake Country youth an important lesson about walking on thin ice. Twelve-year-olds Jordan Funk, Brittney Herriot and 11-year-old Bethany McIsaac were playing on and around Wood Lake in mid-February. Funk said he was standing on a thick piece of ice; however, there was a spot where the ice was thin. “He realized that it wasn’t (thick) and right before he was about to turn around, he fell through,� said Herriot, recalling what she witnessed last month. “We weren’t really near him. We were jumping on thick blocks of ice. When we realized he fell through, we ran over there as fast as we could and started tugging at him.� In the attempt to rescue Funk, McIsaac took a step in the wrong direction. “I moved to the side and stepped on the thin ice by accident,� said McIsaac. McIsaac said that the frigid water shocked her body. To make matters

worse, her arm was in a sling, limiting her movements. Herriot said that the series of events caught her off-guard at first, but she quickly realized how serious the situation was. “I was like, ‘What if I fall in? We’re going to die.’ I went on my

knees and when I was on my knees the ice started cracking. So I moved to thicker ice and then I started tugging on Bethany,� said Herriot. “When Jordan realized she couldn’t swim with the sling, he went under water and pushed her up. Then I pulled the rest of her out. Then I pulled Jordan out.� Funk said that, once in the water, he realized the possibility that he could die. He said he was scared, cold and couldn’t move his legs very easily. The trio’s effort to

Herriot—who eventually helped lift her two friends to safety—is considerably smaller than both Funk and McIsaac.

“I thought, I’m not going to let my friends die. So I did my best to get them out,� she said. After getting out of the water and feeling the effects of hypothermia,

of work. “She was telling me what happened. She could barely talk, I just couldn’t believe what she was telling me, that they had fallen through the

ice,� said Yvonne McIsaac, Bethany’s mom. Yvonne immediately left work, called an ambulance and helped the kids warm up. “They didn’t need to go to the hospital but they definitely needed to warm up faster than I could get them warmed up on my own,� said Yvonne. According to Yvonne, she thought the kids had plenty of education about the dangers of thin ice. “I guess I assumed, like a lot of parents do, living in a valley full of lakes that the kids had heard enough about the dangers. “But I guess you never know. You can’t assume that they know enough. I think there needs to be more awareness.� Approximately a week before the youngsters’ incident, a man fell through the ice on Wood Lake and died. The young trio claimed that none of them were aware of that tragedy. When asked if the kids had learned a lesson from the experience, they quickly replied, in unison, “Never go on thin ice.� wpaterson@kelownacapnews.com

Local residents encouraged to upgrade old wood stoves The Central Okanagan Regional District is aiming to help locals breathe a little easier. During March and April, the Great Okanagan Wood Stove Change Out program offer returns to the Central Okanagan. The program will give a minimum $150 rebate off the suggested retail price of a new EPA/ CSA emission approved

replacement appliance through participating retailers, manufacturers and distributors. Consumers receive the rebate when they surrender their old wood-burning appliance for recycling. Participating Central Okanagan retailers will take care of recycling your old stove and complete all the necessary paperwork for the

rebates. This rebate is in addition to a $250 rebate offered by the regional air quality program, which runs until Dec. 31, or until funds last. Since 2001, almost 600 Central Okanagan homeowners have saved money through the program. In the Okanagan, smoke from wood-burning stoves and fireplaces

is the greatest source of particulate matter next to open burning. Particulate matter is one of the main pollutants that leads to poor air quality and can have serious health impacts. It’s estimated that over 20,000 valley homes are still equipped with inefficient conventional wood stoves or masonry fireplaces. “Wood stove smoke

contributes to poor air quality throughout the Central Okanagan,� said regional air quality program coordinator Kate Bergen. “By replacing old wood-burning fireplaces and stoves with newer technology certified appliances, homeowners will burn one-third less wood and reduce smoke by up to 90 per cent,� she added.

▼ EYE ON GOVERNMENT

Cold climate on Planet BCTF The stories began tumbling out as soon as last week’s column on teacher union indoctrination of students was posted on our websites. Most parents, retired teachers and administrators requested anonymity, because their kids and grandkids still have to go to school, or they have relatives or fairweather friends in the B.C. Teachers’ Federation who mustn’t be enraged by any contradiction of their dogma. There was the Grade 3 art class in Langley where students were assigned to create anti-Bill 22 protest signs. There was the Grade 6 teacher in Greater Victoria who started a onehour drill on BCTF talking points by telling students not to believe anything they see in the media. There was the middle school in the Gulf Islands that dismissed students early to force them all out in a show of solidarity against the

BC Views

Tom Fletcher latest of many legislated settlements. And there were the BCTF-BCGEU pickets that blocked entrances to government offices here in Victoria, harassing, threatening and physically blocking office workers in an effort to force them to join the thousands bused in for the traditional howling show of strength for Big State Labour bosses on the legislature lawn. In my 20 years of criticizing the policies and tactics of teacher union radicals, I have had my office windows smashed twice. I have

seen a mob of self-absorbed strikers push a senior off the sidewalk into the snow. My daughter has been subjected to hard-left environmental propaganda in elementary school. I’ve never seen anything quite like this. But hey, let’s be constructive here. First, I should emphasize I understand that these incidents do not represent the vast majority of dedicated teachers, who wouldn’t think of intentionally abusing their position for personal or political gain. I mean that sincerely. And thanks to all the teachers who sent me lecturing letters, particularly those who insist that they don’t really want another 16-percent raise, because their first priority is improving classroom resources. Volume doesn’t permit individual responses to everyone. Authors who begin along the lines of “Sir, you are an idiot” receive lower priority. If

I don’t get back to you, please convey your willingness to accept a brief wage freeze to your union executive. They’ve scaled back some of their more egregious prep time and paid leave demands, but apparently your admirably altruistic message has not yet been absorbed. And yes, I’m aware that the Harvard study of class size and performance I mentioned last week examined charter schools in the United States. I understand that “charter school” is considered coarse language in B.C. As with health care, there must be no serious competitive dynamic or other dangerous experimentation permitted within the unionized state monopoly model. And thanks for suggesting I’m an agent of the B.C. Liberals, who invented poverty 11 years ago. East Van MLA Jenny Kwan touched on it in the debate on Bill 22.

Children coming to inner city schools hungry, inadequately clothed, with lice. Abused children. I can assure Kwan that these tragic realities are not confined to the hellish B.C. Liberal era of spending increases. Indeed, I witnessed all these things in my three-room school in Tomslake, B.C. in the 1960s. Social Credit was to blame then. I remember the school more for its great teachers than its undrinkable water or alcoholic principal. And to all those who provide spelling-challenged advice on journalistic objectivity, here’s the thing. The first rule of opinion writing is to have one. I’m not looking for middle ground in the cold vacuum between Earth and Planet BCTF. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press newspapers. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

How many religions would I w be writing about with that statement? Is not now the preparation in place that permits abuses against women and children, young girls and boys, and that is within those religions?

which serve to elevate their leadership. If the person shows signs of thinking and asks too many questions, they will quickly experience shunning and/or be marginalized and kept on the edge of C/M/S/T. The excuses come from the leadership in convenient forms which allow for absolute control over others to be kept. If human beings who are attending these religious functions are being deceived into believing that they are now more “righteous” than others who hold different religious beliefs, is that not just another form of “self-righteousness?” With the perception that one is more righteous than others, is it not more clearly manifested where abuses of women, children and young and old alike are coming from? Are these seemingly 5holy religions the source of the ills of our society? Do they not clearly show us that they are serving to separate, segregate and devalue fellow human beings rather than bringing peace and harmony, which they say is possible if you follow their teachings and doctrines? Can anyone not see the competitive nature that invariably has led to genocide here in Canada, the U.S., Germany, Russia, China, etc.? It is more than difficult to “be different,” it is deadly. With all of the stupid blustering postures and the rumours of yet another war with all of its destructive power being thrust upon us once again, I believe that we all need to quickly accept that we are equals one to another, which we are.

here may never have been a St. Patrick. Or there may have been several of them. One of the Patricks certainly left us two letters, containing some details of his life. He was born to a Christian family in Wales, captured and taken to Ireland as a slave. After six years he escaped, returned home, and eventually went back to Ireland as a missionary. He may have written one letter—his Declaration or Confession—to defend himself in a trial instigated by the victim of his other letter, a tirade against someone called Coroticus. A second Patrick— Palladius in Latin—was sent to Ireland by Pope Celestine as a bishop. Both lived in the 5th

century A.D. But there their similarities end. One Patrick wrote rustic Latin; the other, polished Latin. One evangelized and baptized thousands of pagan Irish; the other serviced existing Christian communities. One worked in Ireland’s wilder west and north; the other mainly in the royal cities along the Irish Sea.

In all probability, neither of them threw all the snakes out of Ireland. A total absence of fossils suggests that Ireland never had any snakes to banish. And the shamrock Patrick supposedly used to illustrate the Trinity was already a common symbol of pre-Christian Druids. One of these Patricks died on March 17 and was buried under a large slab of rock in Downpatrick, in one of the most Protestant counties of Northern Ireland. But no one knows for sure which one. I had heard all this long before I went on a pilgrimage in Ireland. As I plodded up a muddy slope along one of those traditional paths, avoiding prickly gorse and sheep drop-

Wearing sandals, moccasins, boots—even bare feet squishing black mud with their toes. Some pilgrims would be silent, devout. Others would be roistering, partying, like many of the characters in Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. Later, a smaller group of us followed more of that pilgrimage path up Mount Brendan. At one point, the trail snaked above a precipice plunging to a tiny tarn far below. “I don’t think I can go on,” said Mary from Los Angeles. She was terrified of heights, she ad-

New Residential Construction Guide Benefits Homeowners and Builders Homeowners have a new tool at their fingertipss to help them better understand how warranty providers evaluate claims for possible design, labour or material defects in new homes. The Residential Construction Performance Guide is the newest online resource available on the provincial Homeowner Protection Office website at www.hpo.bc.ca. It explains how homes covered by home warranty insurance should perform. Every new home built for sale by a licensed residential builder in B.C. is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. “For most consumers, buying a new home is one of the largest financial investments they will make. So it’s essential that homebuyers can make that investment with confidence, knowing that they will not be faced with additional expenses to repair defects after they move in,” said Tony Gioventu, executive director of the Condominium Home Owners’ Association and an advocate for consumer protection. This simple, practical guide is easy to use. It outlines more than 200 possible defects that are searchable online. This includes the most common defect claims that might be submitted under a home warranty insurance policy – from windows that malfunction, to driveway or interior concrete floors that have cracked, to siding that has buckled. Designed primarily for conventional low-rise, wood-frame homes, the guide also provides some helpful guidelines for the common property of multi-unit buildings. Builders can also use the guide to help ensure that they deliver high performance homes.

Residents will see a 2.5% tax increase, $49 on water bill road replacement reserve. Chief financial officer Stephen Banmen said that particular reserve will fall to $275,000. Another road project that will be evident to residents is the decision to return the last portions of Beaver Lake Road within district boundaries to gravel. Current road repair in the 2.8 kilometres under construction costs about $30,000 per year, returning a portion of the road to gravel will cost $70,000 but the district will recoup the cost in much lower future maintenance costs. Over all, Lake Country should be spending about $2 million per year on road maintenance but is spending around $700,000, said Banmen. “We really need to work on our priorities,� he said. The water rate is an incremental increase given the infrastructure needs demonstrated in the Water Master Plan. That plan calls for a $70

The headline numbers for the District of Lake Country budget are a 2.5 per cent increase to the tax rate and a $49 per year increase to the water rate for home owners. The tax increase equates to about $36 per year on an average house in Lake Country with a value of $495,000. Of all tax monies collected by the district, only 52 per cent of the total goes to the District of Lake Country, the remainder is a mix of provincial school taxes and Central Okanagan Regional District fees and levies. The district tax increase represents a 0.8 per cent increase over

the Stats Canada British Columbia consumer price index inflation of 1.7 per cent. In real terms against inflation, the District of Lake Country has budgeted an increase of $75,000 for rate payers without cutting services. “We go backwards without an increase against inflation,� said Mayor James Baker. The mayor and council were faced with some tough decisions for road improvements and capital projects in the district. The most noticeable project approved was the Lodge Road upgrade, the $1 million to $1.2 million project will benefit from an infusion of cash from the gas tax as well as draw down the district’s capital works

news ▼ SIGNS OF SPRING

Return of the northern flicker is yet another sign of spring O

n Sunday, I woke up early as usual and decided this was the day to take my coffee out to my putting green for the first time this year. After chipping and putting a few balls, I felt the mild spring air and smelled the tell-tale lovely aroma of the frost free soil in my garden beds. I paused for a moment from my golfing to sit and sip my coffee on my garden bench which was still dusty from a winter of misuse. And low and behold, I heard what

From Ground Up

Don Burnett I call the best indication spring has arrived. This indicator comes not from the calendar nor does it come from

the emerging snowdrops or hellebores—it is the sound of the colaptes auratus. Commonly known as the northern flicker, this member of the woodpecker family is one of the few species that migrate south. When they return, they seem to want announce their arrival with an almost continual chorus of a distinctive loud rolling rattle that rises and falls in pitch each lasting about seven seconds. They also make a

short “kyeer” sound, about half a second long, that immediately tells me spring has arrived. Years ago on my radio show, I held a contest asking callers to give me their imitation of this familiar call and needless to say we had some fun with it. Even though the flicker is a woodpecker, it gets much of its food from digging in the soil and forest litter with their curved beak for ants and larvae of various sorts. Because of this, don’t

expect flickers to come to a bird feeder unless of course you stock it with those preferred delicacies. But if you have any trees and large shrubs that emulate forest conditions, you can expect to find them. Otherwise you have to be content just to hear their call which I find very pleasant indeed. ••• We have a guest at our home for the time being by the name of Tikka. Tikka is a female border collie cross who, like

all pooches and other animals for that matter, need bathroom facilities, which in our case happens to be our lawn. It is of course wise to “pick up” daily to avoid the unpleasantness of stepping on “things” and to avoid the possibility of other disagreeable manifestation such as disease. But it is the silent liquid toxins from the female gender of the canine species that really ravage turf. Therefore, along with the picking up it is wise at this time of year to

give the areas of concern a good soaking to leach out the toxins hopefully avoiding the typical brown patches. If at the end of the day these patches appear then a scraping away of the dead grass along with a light dressing of garden soil and an application of lawn seed will have the lawn back in order by June. Tune in to The Don Burnett Garden Show on AM 1150 Saturdays from 8 to 10 a.m.

Prevention is best way to avoid gardening-related injuries F

our years ago, my ability to pursue my lifelong passion for gardening was abruptly halted. In a hurry, with my mind elsewhere, I attempted to transplant a large clump of hosta using my back rath-

er than squatting down to use my legs. Immediately, I knew something was wrong but continued, with aching back, to garden that day and the next. This foolhardiness landed me in excruciating pain in hospital for

a week with a herniated disc and unable to garden much for a year. Jill Reid became my physiotherapist. An avid gardener, she taught me how to strengthen my core muscles to support my back and how to garden safely.

Reid, now a physiotherapist and educator at the Kelowna Arthritis Centre, will be giving a presentation Gardening with Arthritis with less Groan & Moan! on Wednesday, March 14, 7 p.m., for the Kelowna Garden Club at the

Joints like being moved, it lubricates them, though it must not be done in a stressful way, and not too repetitively.” The library has several books on gardening with disabilities. After my injury I found ergonomic tools at Lee Valley (www.leevalley.com) and locally at the Art Knapps store on Springfield, while Green and Bear It has some helpful items. Good tools that suit your body needs are the best investment. To recover, I changed to the gentle yoga class at the Kelowna Yoga House. Yoga helps me with flexibility and strength and I am now back in regular classes. Teachers at KYH always adapt

poses if you let them know of injuries. Sandra Bradshaw’s gentle Feldenkrais manipulations and exercises teach my body to move with ease while minimizing pain and discomfort. Using the Feldenkrais Method, I learned to change tasks frequently and to use my whole body to ease strain on specific joints and muscles. From repetitive tasks and long days of nursery work, I ended up with elbow, knee and wrist problems. The staff at Dyck’s Drugs fitted me with braces to support the joints whenever I am in danger of aggravating them. Recently, I’ve discovered the healing powers of Traumeel homeopathic remedy and cream and Arnica gel and remedy. Both ease muscle pain, joint stiffness and can dramatically reduce bruising from injury. Soaking in a hot bath with one to two cups of Epsom salts really eases sore, stiff muscles. I’ve learned to hire help for tasks like digging, moving and spreading mulch or soil and transplanting big plants, saving my body for more skilled and enjoyable tasks. More than ever I appreciate the Seven Principles of Xeriscape. Following them helps me to garden successfully with a lot less effort.

New university research aims to make for a healthier, happier society

Universities are places of learning and discovery, and that drive for knowledge has produced countless breakthroughs. Numerous health research projects underway at the University of British Columbia Okanagan have the potential to lead to major advances that will benefit the public. Gordon Binsted is the acting dean of the Faculty of Health and Social Development, which includes the Schools of Nursing, Social Work and Health and Exercise Sciences—all areas where research is being conducted with the goal of helping people live healthy lives.

“Universities have a number of different roles when it comes to research,” says Binsted, adding the first role is the creation of new knowledge. Universities do not simply teach what others have learned, but actively seek new information which is then directly passed on to students, making their learning experience as current as possible. “That’s at the heart of any university,” says Binsted. “The core of research is the discovery and application of knowledge.” That application can be found in the commu-

nity, which ultimately benefits from the discoveries made by university research. “Research is a lot of baby steps, but without those you will never have the big breakthrough. Our job is to keep taking those steps,” says Binsted, noting the next baby step could be the one to change the world, or it could add another piece to the puzzle. But neither would happen if that first step is not taken. Paul van Donkelaar, associate professor and acting director of the School of Health and Exercise Sciences, says there is no shortage

of areas that require academic investigation. Van Donkelaar, who took over as acting director in July 2011, says his school is actively researching transitions in health care for the elderly, how exercise impacts chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, how the brain functions in low oxygen situations, and a variety of other projects with potential to improve people’s health. “With a fairly quick turnaround, we can get the resulting information into the hands of people who are seeing patients,” says van Donkelaar.

PAUL VAN DONKELAAR, associate professor and acting director fo the School of Health and Exercise Sciences, is one of many professors and students actively involved in a variety of research projects at UBCO.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

UBCO students learn firsthand how it is to be homeless JENNIFER SMITH STAFF REPORTER

Five days without food, water, shelter. It might not sound like your average university memory, but a small group of UBC Okanagan students will join the national 5 Days For The Homeless campaign starting this Sunday in an attempt to raise money for and awareness of the homeless. Fourth year accounting student Austin Newton, second year business student Bobbi Rieger, third year management student Shelby Foth and fourth year psychology student Erica Sutherland are all going to spend five nights sleeping outside at UBCO, begging for their meals and scavenging a livelihood. “A couple of my dad’s friends have become homeless over the years because of circumstances,� said Rieger, noting people don’t often realize how easily it can

happen. While the experience is not intended to mimic the true experience of being homeless, it does catch public attention and highlight some of the difficulties going without a home creates. Foth has done this before in Saskatchewan with a church groups. He said it can be very difficult to cope with the cold for an extended period. Both she and Newton said they had been fortunate to obtain an education with the support of their families and felt they should give back. And Sutherland noted she wants to make a difference in her last year on campus. The 5 Days for the Homeless campaign began in 2005 at the University of Alberta’s School of Business, started by students who expressed similar sentiments to what the UBCO participants this year are saying.

From there, the campaign has spread across Canadian university campuses to where this year 24 schools will participate. UBCO organizer Kendra Hapke, a participant last year, said the experience caught her off-guard. “I don’t think I realized what I had signed up for,� she said. “It was a lot more physically tough than I had expected, but I also got a lot more out of it than I thought. “I didn’t realize how hard it was to sleep outside on cement for five days. “We could only eat donated food. We were fairly well fed, but the quality of food you’re getting obviously isn’t that good. So you’re groggy, malnourished and I was just tired.� Each university picks their own charity and the UBCO students have picked HOPE Outreach, a volunteer service provider helping

Research is continuing apace at UBCO campus RESEARCH FROM A9 He adds that a lot of the research investigates how to prevent disease in the first place. Also new to campus is Patricia Marck, who took over as the director of the School of Nursing last fall. Marck says she is excited about research partnerships with the BC Ministry of Health, Interior Health, and several Okanagan communities in community, rural and global health. There are new projects in Aboriginal and

Metis health and in primary care, as well as continuing strategies to reduce tobacco use, provide effective end-of-life care for rural British Columbians and partnerships with institutions in Africa. “It is gratifying to see more and more of our researchers supported by provincial and national funding agencies,� says Marck. “But it is even more rewarding to see our faculty and students creatively use social media to promote tobacco reduction, collaborate with rural com-

munities to improve palliative care, or work with the Zambian Ministry of Health to study patients’ experiences of hypertension treatment. These are research activities that make concrete contributions to improving health.� School of Social Work director Edward Taylor says research has always been important within the School of Social Work, but it has increasingly become a major component -- and indeed an expectation -- of what the school does.

Paul Rodgers may still fill a concert with fans reborn watching Free’s lead singer belt out hits from Bad Company days, but the racy crowd he pitches for now is retired. Dubbed “The Voice� by fans and named number 55 on Rolling Stone’s Greatest Singers of All Time list—three ahead of Christina Aguilera and four ahead of Rod Stewart—he now spends his off-time bolstering a race horse sanctuary and is genuinely knowledgable on life after track in the equine realm. “Very often they’re sent to slaughter,� he says frankly as our brief interview opens. The animals are so high strung after racing they need to be socialized to tone those impulses down, he explains, but apparently, even when they’re hyped and ready for action, and truly unruly with almost everyone, they’re very good with autistic children. One can’t really imagine the smooth voice on the other end of the line being the type of super high-strung star who might relate to this fate—top of the world one day, out to pasture the next—but he’s certainly got the dance with stardom credits. In the Woodstock era, Rodgers was a teenage Brit rocker who started a band called Free and wound up epitomizing the nonchalance of the peace and love era in a way that made his ascent to the ’70s hitmaking machine Bad Company seem a given. The bands that followed—The Firm and

The Law—never made the radar on the same level, though they offered him the chance to work with Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin, Steve Winwood, Jeff Back and Joe Cocker. From the sounds of things, Rodger is enjoying dabbling in other aspects of life today. His wife, Cynthia Kereluk Rodgers, is very involved in his charity efforts, helping relocate his U.K. sanctuary in the wake of the global financial crisis and the pressures it caused for the non-profit organization. His latest song, With Our Love, co-written with producer Perry Margouleff, will assist the sanctuaries they each support, as Margouleff backs one in New York. And when Rodgers hits the stage in Kelowna, one can expect it will be in the lineup. “I like to put on a really exciting show,� he says. “The important thing for me is that people are a part of it.� Rodgers doesn’t give a lot of concerts these days. He’s just won the Ivor Novello Award—joining alumni like Elton John, Bryan Adams and Iron Maiden—but limits his live performances. According to his wife, it’s part of their strategy to keep that golden voice on pitch as he heads toward his own golden years. The string of hits he’s known for—including songs like Feel Like Making Love, Can’t Get Enough, Alright Now— could keep you singing for days, but if there’s one theme that draws them together, it’s their soul. Rock anthems about love paved his way to stardom, so giving back

PAUL RODGERS makes a rare performance stop at the Kelowna Community Theatre on March 15. to Critteraide, Crock Talk and the human society, as the couple plan to do with a silent auction in Kelowna, probably should be par for the course in his world. All the same, his mind is really never too far from music. Rodgers is currently making plans for a Stax Records revival album with hopes of pulling all of the original artists who are “still kicking’ it� together. People like Johnny Daye—the label had a string of big singers—inspired his own vocal development.

As he built his name on his ability to belt out a tune over the electric guitars, Rodgers says he loves it when something just grabs him, like the bluegrass recorded for the movie Oh Brother Where Art Though. “I like music that comes from the heart,� he explains, breaking into song. It explains his choice of new artists—Adele. He describes her as tapping into the same emotional pool as his generation’s electric guitarlaced rockers sourced.

As for how he still manages the never ending flow of songs he’s able to generate, Rodgers claims that the writing process will always remain a mystery. “I listen to what people are saying, look around at the world and I just pick up a guitar and I interpret it,� he said.

Okanagan College professor short listed on coveted CBC short story contest A professor in Okanagan College’s English faculty is now among 10 English-language finalists for the coveted CBC Canada Writes Short Story prize. Alix Hawley, who grew up in Kelowna, is up for the prize for her short story Tentcity, a satirical tale of lost love set against the backdrop of the 2003 Okanagan Fire. Her work was selected from more than 3,750 short stories submitted from across the country. “I was utterly astonished when I heard the news,� said Hawley. “I’ve entered for the last few years and I just threw this one in. It never occurred to me this story would end up in the top 10.� Hawley said it is encouraging to see so many writers embracing the short story genre, particularly when there are some who still consider

Art camps for the kids during Spring Break The Kelowna Art Gallery has a creative solution for parents wondering what to do with their children during Spring Break. Art Break offers children the opportunity to create art, with sessions in painting, sculpture, drawing, mixed media, cartooning and printmaking. Each day of Art Break offers something new, with day camps held for children ages 5 to 8 during the week until Friday, March 16, and Wednesday to Friday March 21 to 23. The cost per day for camps for children ages 5 to 8 is $55 for KAG members and $70 for non-members. If registrants sign up for any four classes, they will receive the fifth class for free.

CARTOONING New this year, the Kelowna Art Gallery has added a two-day cartooning workshop entitled Creative Cartoons. Suitable for children ages 8 to 12, Creative Cartoons will be instructed by local artist Niina Teto, on Monday, March 19 and Tuesday, March 20. Students will learn

how to create original and appealing cartoon characters, learn the basics of putting together a comic storyboard, and will be guided to create a poster or comic book cover with their character as the centre piece. The cost for the twoday camp is $110 for KAG members and $125 for non-members. “The Kelowna Art Gallery is a great place for children and their friends to do something together during Spring Break,â€? says RenĂŠe Burgess, head of public programming at the Kelowna Art Gallery. “Encouraging children’s creativity and showing them how rewarding actively participating in the visual arts can be is our focus.â€? In addition to creative exploration for participants, Art Break can offer parents peace of mind that their children are spending Spring Break with their peers in a nurturing and safe environment. To register, contact the Gallery at 250.762.2226. The Kelowna Art Gallery is located at 1315 Water St. in the Cultural District of downtown Kelowna.

A day of tasting and fun at California’s Coppola winery MIKE SIEGEL CONTRIUBTOR

A visit to the Francis Ford Coppola Winery in Geyserville, Cal., is more than just a wine-tasting amid poetic rolling hills of vineyards. It’s a day destination, complete with an array of non-wine-related activities—swimming pools, bocce ball courts, 28 pool “cabines�—and a chance to explore some of the most famous movie paraphernalia in cinema history. Director Coppola’s five golden Oscars are

among the displays in the winery’s Movie Gallery exhibits, including his first Oscar—for the 1972 film The Godfather. Also on display is the 1948 Tucker Sedan— only 51 of the then-revolutionary cars were manufactured—used in Coppola’s 1988 film, Tucker: The Man and His Dream. There’s more to the winery than wine and movie memorabilia. It’s designed to be a place where adults and children can relax for a day. An outdoor stage, the

Pavilion, hosts live music and other entertainment. It’s adorned with a large mural that was part of the set of Godfather II. Nearby are two swimming pools which open each spring, joined by a “swim-through� with spraying arches of water. Covering 3,600 square feet, the pools give room for family play. To accommodate changing there are 28 poolside “cabines�— European-style private changing rooms with showers—available for SEE COPPOLA A16

Funky doesn’t always come cheap these days CHRISTOPHER REYNOLDS CONTRIBUTOR

Americans call it the Northwest—where Washington, Idaho and British Columbia converge. It’s where a lazy little international border crossing called Nelway sits, about the size of a gas station. The town of Nelson, semi-Victorian, substantially bohemian, sportier and more artsy than your average hamlet of 9,700 souls, sits in the Selkirk Mountains of British Columbia, about 30 miles north of the U.S. border. It has dramatic leaves in fall, skiing in winter, swimming and boating in summer, hiking and mountain biking much of the year. Thousands of American draft resisters and back-to-the-landers chose this area as a haven 40 years ago, and hundreds are said to remain, but it gets barely a trickle of U.S. tourists.

Just below the town lies the west arm of photogenic Kootenay Lake. Just above town rises Toad Mountain, where the discovery of silver prompted the founding of Nelson about 125 years ago. Nelson’s stone and brick Victorians, once the province of off-duty miners and loggers, now house or neighbour eccentric shops, galleries and restaurants. The Sacred Ride (on Baker Street) peddles bikes. Downward Dog (Front Street) offers pet supplies. The Funky Monkey (Front Street) grills burgers. ROAM (Baker Street) promises gear for rivers, oceans and mountains. Summer may be the busiest season, but “fall is the most beautiful time,� said Virginia Wassick, who, with her husband, Duncan, runs the three-room Grand Lakefront Bed & Breakfast in a rambling old house near

the lake’s edge. In September and October, Wassick said, the guests “come and stay a week or two and sit on the deck, look at the colours and read books. I love the September-October people. They’re so laid-back.� Nelson—more than 640 km east of Vancouver—is too little and isolated to stand as a major destination by itself. But guests can fly into Castlegar, about 40 km south of Nelson, and spend a few days driving a 135-mile loop from Nelson past the mountains, lakes, rivers, meadows and towns of Kaslo, New Denver, Silverton and Slocan. Or follow the 280-mile International Selkirk Loop (www.selkirkloop.org), which includes handsome chunks of Idaho and Washington. For us, Nelson was a three-day respite at the northernmost point of a 1,200-mile road trip that

began in Seattle and ended in Portland, Ore. We window-shopped on Baker Street; bought Magic Treehouse volumes in Otter Books for our 7-yearold daughter, Grace; paced the little pier that juts into the lake; took a skiff for a buzz around on the water; and drove across the big orange bridge—which locals call BOB because, remember, it’s a Big Orange Bridge—toward the postcard views at Pulpit Rock overlook and Kokanee Creek Provincial Park. The Whitewater Ski Resort, about 20 minutes outside Nelson, is a small operation. The resort’s Fresh Tracks Cafe is a favourite among B.C. foodies who revere the Whitewater Cooks cookbook by former resort chef Shelley Adams.
